Business like hotel is clean, comfortable and functional. We arrived after 2pm but were told the room was not ready, but a very friendly receptionist quickly found another room and gave us a choice of having that room or waiting for the room that was originally allocated to us. We chose the room that he found on the 20th floor which had good views and was quiet. The hotel is in a great central location and can be accessed from the road level or from a different level depending where you are coming from. We arrived by intercity bus at platform 9 and had a 15 minute walk.
The rooms have a fridge and microwave and coffee making facilities but no toaster. We were disappointed by the lack of channels on the sky tv, but felt this was a money making scheme to get people to pay for movies.
The other annoyance was the Chargeable internet which was free in other cheaper motels, again this seems to be another way of getting more money out of people. We tried to connect to see the fees but it did not seem to work so resorted to our own dongle to get online.
Overall the hotel was a good option for central Wellington but is rather characterless businesslike hotel, and would be better if the Wifi and Sky were inclusive.
Also quite noisy on saturday night
